Following the horrific massacre at the Capital Gazette on Thursday, President Trump tweeted a video where he offered  his condolences and his prayers for the families of the victims:

Rob Cox one of Reuters top editors responded to Trump’s heartfelt words to the families of the victims and those affected by the victies with a disgusting tweet, where he blamed President Trump. Cox tweeted: “This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul. At least four people killed in Maryland newspaper shooting: reports.”

Thursday night after blaming President Trump for the deadly Capital Gazette shooting in a now-deleted tweet that was sent during a “state of emotional distress,” Cox apologized.

Reuters Breaking views Editor Rob Cox admitted that he “responded emotionally and inappropriately” after being called out for jumping to conclusions prior to the facts emerging. Police said the suspected gunman, eventually identified as Jarrod W. Ramos, targeted the newspaper after a lengthy feud regarding a 2012 defamation lawsuit.

Cox apologized in a series of four tweets once it became clear that Ramos’ motive predated Trump entering the world of politics. –Fox News

“When I saw the news today that a mass shooter had targeted the employees of a newspaper in Maryland I responded emotionally and inappropriately,” Cox wrote. “Though my comments were entirely personal, they were not in keeping with the Reuters Trust Principles and my own standards for letting facts, not snap judgments, guide my understanding.”

“My experience as a member of the community of Newtown, Connecticut in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook tragedy, combined with the possibility that my colleagues in the press were being targeted, pushed me into a state of emotional distress.”

Where were all of these “so-called” reporters when law enforcement officers were being killed across America after the Obama supported Black Lives Matter terror movement put a bullseye on their backs?

CNN also blamed President Trump for the act of violence that had nothing to do with President Trump or his supporters:

Young Turks host Cenk Uygur joined the fake news #Resist Trump movement, and also blamed President Trump:

And just for good measure, Uygur blamed the NRA as well:
